before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
always have to ask yourself, is the united states and the national security better if we're gone completely or have a sphere of influence there? i do believe it ought to be leverage as we move forward and we have to get some commitments by this government that they're going to do more in sinai, less to provoke israel and make sure our u.s. embassies are protected fully by the egyptian government. it's unconscionable this could happen on their watch. so it needs to be a point of discussion. we need to be careful about starting to pull out of places that we don't understand the changes that are happening and we don't understand the intelligence and military roles yet and what this muslim brotherhood is trying to do. we should walk into that decision, not run into it. >> speaking of israel, what do you make of this decision the white house telling the israeli government, prime minister netanyahu coming to the united states that the president won't be able to meet with him because of scheduling conflicts. this comes at a time of tension between the u.s. and israel over iran and its n

, was an apology according to mitt romney and put at the feet of the president of the united states by mitt romney says in part that the embassy in cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims as we ken dumb efforts to offend believers of all religions. today the anniversary of september 11th americans are honoring our patriots those that serve our nation is the fitting democracy. respect is a cornerstone of american democracy and reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. this was released by the embassy in cairo apparently without washington's approval six hours before the protests. not as an apology for the protests or explanation or response. you've been in embassies around the world, top levels of the state department in washington, first of all, do the press officers at embassies have the authority to release a statement like that if intelligence and other information indicates that they may be experiencing protests? >> they certainly do. we have one of the most
of the united states nowhere to be seen. >>> a brawl breaks out at a plant making apple products forcing it to shut down. what is that going to mean for your new iphone? let's go "outfront." >>> good evening. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, iran slaps israel. iran's president ahmadinejad is on american soil tonight and i was with him today. he was smiling, making jokes, very relaxed as he took questions from a group of journalists at his hotel. he kept asking us to exchange views. not just ask questions. but we had a lot of questions to ask. and in his answers, he called israel's threats to attack iran's nuclear program, in his words, a blip on the radar screen. >> translator: principally, we do not take seriously what the scientists say in threatening iran. >> so it's hard to imagine a more clear bow off than that, right? until you hear this. >> translator: they have been ok pieing those territories for the last 60 to 70 years with the support of force of the westerners. they have no roots there in history. iran is a vast, great country that has been as such for thousands of years
thing either for the region or the flowering of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that the president doesn't need to as jonathan put it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think that it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting with netanyahu, because he's in a good place with that community. i don't think there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes place there we have the freedom to take the side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is inside baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's interests and think there's something to be said not rock the

vowed to bring justice to the killers in this libyan attack. to the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. make no mistake. we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who have attacked our people. since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject denigrating the religious police of others. there is absolutely no type of excuse for this type of senseless violence. megyn: joining me now we have two guests. bill, thank you for being here. i want to talk to you as a former communications person. about the response we have seen this morning from the president and from governor romney. >> it is a very difficult time. i thought the president's remarks looked a little devoid of passion. governor romney is getting a lot of criticism for his position with the president, but i think he is right to make a point. the world is a very dangerous place. when people think they can attack america with tyranny. megyn: why would our state department and embassy be coming out with p
. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. jon: so where does the story go from here. greg palkot is following for it live from london. greg? >> reporter: we're getting more and more information about the tragic events in libya as the day goes on. first who was involved along with ambassador to libya, chris stevens. the information officer there in libya for the united states, sean smith. as well as two other americans. possibly security. not to be confirmed yet. still be identified. they were killed in or around the consulate in benghazi that happened overnight. stevens was a career diplomat. played a key role in the tumultuous period in libya. the type of diplomat we come time and time again. president clinton --. this was result of attack by islamists protesting this film made in the u.s., critical of the muslim prophet muhamm
is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nati sluggh recovery. he's seizing on new economic data revising down the 2nd quarter gdp. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china's growing much faster than we. russia's growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> but not all the numbers
between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue
, the israelis do not believe that there is as much time as you well know as the united states believes. what can we do to persuade prime minister netanyahu not to take preemptive action because there is more time, or do you agree there is more time for sanctions to work? >> i would agree with secretary clinton. i agree with that. additionally, the p5 plus 1 negotiations, i understand, have resumed. i think what needs to be done candidly and i have suggested this privately to the administration, i think we have to learn whether the supreme leader wants an agreement and if he does, what it will take. it may well be that the united states has to bilaterally step up and take use of this opportunity, to interface dir t directly with the supreme leader. i understand israel's position. i also know that the united states has been working hand and glove with israel, in many different ways, many of them classified, so there has been really unbridled cooperation with israel. so, i think we have done everything that we should be doing. >> and senator, just briefly, you're suggesting direct talks between th
